A little bit of Christmas

I'll post more of Christmas later. I just didn't want to forget, these moments.
So Karlie goes down stairs to see what Santa gave her, she runs up stairs and wakes us up. "Santa came and guess what he brought me, a toothbrush!!" she was so excited. I was laughing so hard. She didn't care about the toys or all the stocking stuff, just the toothbrush that turns off and on. I couldn't believe it.

Another moment of Karlie was, we were Skyping J.R.'s family. They ask if she had been good so Santa could come and she said, "No, I was totally bad, but he still came, I told my mom he would." Santa probably should have brought her coal.

Bears in NJ

It's been a fun year here with bears. Tons of my friends have had black bears coming in and out of their back yards. Finally this month they let hunters go in and hunt them. I'm not sure how I feel, since we are cutting down their homes for our million dollar houses and huge yards, nobody ever plays in or uses, just for looks. Anyway the hunters hunted down 589 bears in our county! I didn't realize we had that many by us.

Touch a Truck

Our favorite town even of the year. I think I counted at least 30 different kinds of trucks where there. They let the kids sit in them, honk the horns, spray the water, and etc.... Gavin this year loved the garbage truck. At our house every Wednesday we watch 40 townhouses get their garbage picked up. 2 hours of my day gone...but he loves it, and next he'll be in preschool and this moment gone. Karlie loved the book mobile. Nathan loved everything.



What a great holiday, my favorite in fact. It's fun, and not stressful. And here in NJ there is so much to do all month. We went to our Grocery stores party, library's, halloween parades at the outlet stores. We still haven't ventured up to ghost towns, the headless horse mans town, or to Salem, Mass. But we plan on doing it next year.

Grandma and Auntie Danielle came to visit!

We love when people come to visit. We had so much fun with them. We already miss them. The kids made some fun rice crispy treats with them. What a great time.


Gavin's loves Choo....Choo..trains. So while Grandma and Auntie was visiting we decided to take a choo...choo...train ride. It was on a 200 year old train from the 1800's. It was rusty but still ran well. It dropped us off on a farm that was a big corn maze. Then they gave us some treasure coins for food, hot chocolate, and toys. So fun!
